Today, on the 11th Sunday of Luke, the Gospel lesson comes to us from Luke 14:16-24. Therein we hear the well-known parable of "The Great Banquet." Father Paul shares that the message of the parable is a simple one. It speaks to us about those who will be spiritually happy and satisfied in this life and the next. Those who accept and respond to Jesus' invitation to commune with Him will be Blessed.
